Hi Dave, while it's been undeniably slow, "no end in sight" is not 
really accurate.  Here is the correct status, since I am document 
shepherd for both:

- The fq-codel draft is completely and totally done in terms of IETF 
process, and has been in the RFC Editor's queue simply awaiting the 
codel draft to arrive.  This is what the "MISSREF" state indicates in 
that IETF datatracker tool.  It completed the IETF last call and IESG 
balloting in March/April earlier this year.

- The codel document completed AQM working group last call, and I 
believe is awaiting the authors to make changes requested by the Area 
Director in order to go for IETF Last Call and IESG balloting.

The end is most definitely within sight!
